Armenia - Natural Resources Management and Poverty Reduction Project (English)

Ratings for the Natural Resources Management and Poverty Reduction Project for Armenia were as follows: outcomes were moderately satisfactory, the risk to development outcome was moderate, the Bank performance was moderately satisfactory, and the Borrower performance was also moderately satisfactory. Some lessons learned included: project design should be based on a shared understanding of objectives and outcomes as well as an accurate assessment of local implementation capacity to achieve them. Project design should take into consideration timing requirements if project objectives rely on policy and legal changes, or objectives should be aligned with the existing policies and legal framework if the timeframe is tight. Sustainable natural resource management requires strong beneficiary commitment. Institutional and legal reforms in a sector such as forestry, characterized by multiple conflicting interests, require time and continual oversight. Parallel grant financing from Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) was essential to project achievements; however, its monitoring was complex. Donor coordination and collaboration are essential to tackle complex problems such as illegal logging that benefit from harmonizing experiences and funding potential.
